Grapes are pressed immediately after they are machine harvested. The must is then stored for 24 hours at temperatures between 41°F and 45°F; this process allows the wine to capture the aromatic substances contained within the skins. After fermentation, the wine is aged in 30,000-liter stainless steel tanks for six to seven months. The wine then rests on its lees and is aged for an additional three to six months in the bottle.
